The patch just works this way - it translates BACKWARD -> LEFT and
FORWARD -> RIGHT. The action for the first is 'cd ..', and the for the
latter - simply dive into dir if clicked over it.

There is no problem with switching this behaviour into pure back and
forward - just I thought you were interested in 'cd ..' action when
having configured midclick to 'new tab'

The flag you are looking for is:

        gnome-commander -d u
There is no separate flag for scanning all keycodes - the printed ones
are those handled by user actions only. If you want to examine keycodes
in details, just use xev utility.
